April 2017 – #Atozchallenge – Suddenly S

If you pay attention to the dates on the blog then you’ll know this is seriously past due for the A to Z challenge.  I made it one of my goals, though, to finish the letters so here is my letter “S.”

Sade is one of those singers like Adele, who does not tour very often.  When she came out with her “Soldier of Love” CD we were hoping she would do a show near us.

John Legend was the opening act, which was a pleasant surprise.  His first song was a cover of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep!”  We had some real Legend fans around us who kept shouting, “Sing it, John!”  “That’s right!”

Sade took FOREVER to come out.  We had heard rumors that she was slow to start her shows but we were beginning to get frustrated.  All that changed, however, when the first beats of “Soldier of Love” started and she rose from underneath the stage.

She sang songs from the new album and also lots of her hits from other albums.  She had a really good backup band.  When she came out for her last few songs after a costume change, she wasn’t wearing shoes!  I thought that was pretty funny.

Unfortunately, because she was so late in starting the show, we had to leave before the encore or we would miss the last BART train home.  Still, it was a great show and she has not done a big tour since then so I’m glad we went.

Even though the challenge was over a month ago, you can still click over to the main A to Z Challenge page to see what other participants have come up with for this letter.

I have one more letter left, “V,” and then I really will have finished the A to Z!

  1. I love Sade, and I’m sure it was amazing to see her in person. I wonder if she gets stage fright? I admire your tenacity in finishing the A-Z challenge. I did it the year before last and didn’t have a theme as complicated (and productive) as yours. You have these wonderful pieces of art to remember these amazing concerts!

    Wow, that sounds like an awesome concert Janet! John Legend as the opener: wowsa. Way cool. And what a song to start off with!
    I know the frustration of waiting for the headliner to come on. That happened during the Black & Blue Tour: Black Sabbath with Blue Oyster Cult opening. BOC blew them away anyway, but Black Sabbath took so stinkin’ long to come on stage it was ridiculous and people were getting irritated. I know I was. So then when they did come on, I wasn’t in the mood any more! I say, hands down, Blue Oyster Cult was the fan favorite that night..
    Love the keepsake you put together for the show. Will look forward to your letter V!

      Thanks Michele! We were most upset because we had to leave early in order to catch the last train out. We think she should have been aware of that and taken it into consideration. After all, we pay a pretty penny to see these people! There have been a couple of times when the opening act has blown away the headliner for us too. Black and Blue Tour, cool name! Thanks for stopping by!


  3. Better late than never and you did a really good “S.”
